In the early morning of July 10, 2016, 27-year-old Rich was shot multiple times in his back — in what was initially reported as an attempted robbery — but nothing was stolen from him other than his life.
Appearing on the Steve Malzberg Show on NewsMax TV on Tuesday, Jack Burkman, the Republican lobbyist who is acting as a spokesman for the Rich family, discussed the fact that they now have evidence that there were two men involved in the shooting. He also revealed the possible existence of surveillance footage, uncovered by the family relentlessly canvassing the neighborhood seeking witnesses.
Rich had been employed with the DNC for two years and was the Director of Voter Expansion, leading many to theorize that perhaps he knew something about the voter fraud occurring during the primaries, and was responsible for the leak of 30,000 DNC emails to Wikileaks. The massive leak appeared to show the party conspiring against Hillary Clinton’s opponent Bernie Sanders.
The Wikileaks theory was given more attention after the controversial publisher offered up reward money for information leading to the conviction of Rich’s killer.
For Assange to have made such an allusion to the DNC being involved in Seth Rich's murder, Rich's parents sure seemed awfully silent. No so silent anymore, are they?
I hope that if someone knows something about Seth Rich that they will come forward now. Maybe some of the fear is removed. I'm not certain if the Clinton's are less of a threat because the stakes are not as high right now, but we can hope.

Assange tweeted a few days ago:
Who hacked the DNC over the last few years and who gave WikiLeaks their emails are two separate questions. Can journalists count to two?
Russia probably hacked the server, but I don't think they are the ones who sent the emails to Assange.
I suspect it was a whistle blower - Seth Rich.
And I suspect that what he was whistle blowing about was the rigged primary election.
This has nothing to do with Trump or Russia.
Assange is probably enjoying it, because he hates Hillary.
But, I think the timing has more to do with the death of Seth Rich.

Before launching the new communications firm that works with progressive candidates, The Pastorum Group, with three other partners—Josh Cohen, Brad Bauman and Tory Brown—this past January, Edwards acted as vice president for Rising Tide Interactive, where her chief mission was securing Hillary Clinton the title of first female president of the United States.
Burkman has also offered an additional $100,000 in reward money, adding to the $25,000 reward offered by the DC Metropolitan Police Department, $20,000 offered by WikiLeaks, and additional $20,000 reward pledged by popular author Mike Cernovich through the journalism crowdfunding platform WeSearchr. In total, there is over $165,000 in reward money — but still, no suspects have been named.
He had multiple connections to the Clintons and was, by all accounts, an honorable man who would not have been able to sit idly by and do nothing while he watched the democratic process suborned.
